U.S. Commerce Dept. Raises Import Duties On Chinese Extrusions December 09, 2015

NEW YORK, Dec 9 (Reuters) - The U.S. Commerce Department raised countervailing duties on aluminum extrusion imports from 38 companies qualifying for a special rate to 61.35 percent, up from 9.67 percent for several of them, according to a document posted on a government website.

The countervailing duty rate for Chinese extruders not qualifying for a special rate is 158.96 percent. The increase comes after Commerce also raised anti-dumping duties on several Chinese extruders last week, in a victory for their U.S. competitors
